Rumi: Swallowing the Sun

Franklin D. Lewis

Timeless and eternal, the poetry of Jalal al-Din Rumi is loved the world over. The best-selling poet from America to Afghanistan, his words are as relevant today as ever, still resonating with contemporary concerns of both East and West alike. This beautifully presented volume draws from the breadth of Rumi’s work, spanning his prolific career from start to finish. From the uplifting to the mellow, Franklin Lewis’ polished translation will prove inspirational to both keen followers of Rumi’s work and readers discovering the great poet for the first time.
